It's really orange!

Here's our first New Queen watermelon, picked yesterday. It's so hard to tell when a watermelon is ripe. I even did a Google search to find out. Here is some pretty good information. This melon seemed to fit the criteria, as far as I could tell. But after cutting into it and tasting it, I'd say I should have waited maybe a few more days. It just wasn't as sweet as I think it should've been, and though there were dark brown seeds, there were many that were full size but still mostly white. Also, the center of the melon is a little pale yet. So, I'll try to do better on the next one. At least you get to see the orange color!
